Platelet Count is a measure of the number of platelets in the blood. Low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) can cause easy bruising and bleeding, while high platelet count (thrombocytosis) may indicate inflammation or other health problems.

iollo markers that associate with Platelet Count

Arachidonic acid

Arachidonic acid is released from platelet membranes and converted to thromboxane A2, a potent platelet activator and vasoconstrictor. Higher arachidonic acid levels may reflect increased platelet activation and count.

Docosahexaenoic acid

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supplementation has been shown to reduce platelet aggregation. Higher DHA levels may be associated with lower platelet counts.

Eicosapentaenoic acid

Like DHA, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) can decrease platelet aggregation. Increased EPA levels may correlate with reduced platelet counts.

Phosphatidylcholine aa C36:4

Phosphatidylcholine is another major platelet membrane phospholipid. Variations in phosphatidylcholine aa C36:4 could indicate altered platelet membrane makeup and quantity.

Phosphatidylcholine aa C38:4

Similar to PC aa C36:4, changes in phosphatidylcholine aa C38:4 levels may mirror platelet membrane status and count.

Sphingomyelin C24:1

Sphingomyelin is a key component of platelet membranes. Altered levels of certain sphingomyelin species like C24:1 may reflect changes in platelet membrane composition and count.
